I prefer this to the Pence Ranch #staritahills #chardonnay The latter seaming riper, sweeter with popcorn aromas. This #santamaria seems like higher acidity yet still has buttery autolytic notes — 9 months ago

Killer #Syrah with amazing freshness #highacidity at the same time as 14.8% alc. so #staritahills all the black pepper and violets on the nose and all the ripe tannins and blackberry candy on the palate. @Ryan Zotovich — 2 years ago

"My Friend Matt's Vineyard" Los Olivos District Syrah 2017

There are a lot of seriously amazing #syrah that is coming out of #sbcounty from #santamariavalley and #staritahills like #storm #dragonette and #holusbolus #zotovich yet this seems like an antithesis to what I love about those wines. This smells and tastes like chocolate milk on acid. Where’s the crushed pepper? Where’s the rich black fruit and herbs? Reminds me of the Wendy’s commercial “where’s the meat?” For me the oak isn’t noble. Seems like staves or chips. This is a 2017 it should be showing complexity and tertiary but it’s just one-dimension fruity raspberries, milk chocolate and acid. Not my thing #losolivos #overrated — 6 months ago

Lovely Rita Pinot Noir 2016

The Gevrey of Central Coast Pinots. Mushroom, black tea and roasted fruits, balanced by energy, low alcohol and lift. Excellent value. #longoria #pinotnoir #staritahills — 3 years ago

Bloom's Field Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2014

I've always loved the 2014 Bloom's Field for it's pure cherry-berry fruits, minerality and tension. It's far from a blockbuster, but instead keeps you coming back to the glass with a display that is woodland and somehow autumnal, ripe yet also wiry, precise and juicy to the core. The perfect dinner companion, so to speak, but don't rush it, because this takes a good hour to really get the conversation going.

Pinot Noir Reserve 2013

9.3

Médium garnet, legs, medium nose, potpourri, dried roses, slightly meaty and bloody, cumin and sage and smoke. On the palate it’s completely #californiawine with a rich and luscious body and flavors. Strawberry tart and rhubarb. With a touch of leather. Wicked #pinotnoir from #staritahills #zotovich — 3 years ago
